My "new" addiction

I no longer can go to Meijers Grocery/Department store to buy groceries. Like an alcoholic in a liquor store or a gambler in a casino I am drawn to my weakness like a high powered magnet and can't seem to resist. What's my weakness you ask? Buying Schleich animals for my grandsons! They were rated as the #1 toy for 2009 by the Today Show, (if that source means anything to you-ha!). Yet, after watching my eldest grandson play with them constantly I would agree with their assessment. I truly believe we could take away all of Christian's other toys and he wouldn't mind as long as he still had his animals. The variety of animals they manufacture is amazing and the detail and quality of each animal exceeds most of today's toys. Fortunately or unfortunately for an addict like me they usually cost less than $5.00 each making them an "easy buy". Since I am staying with Rebecca now I have taken a number of photos of Christian and Logan and generally the animals are in the pictures somewhere. Oh, by the way, these animals are easy to mail, hence Aiden has a good collection already in progress!
All you grandparents out there-be warned!! If you pass by a bin of Schleich animals check them out and you too may become hooked!!
